Sneak Peek of our Home Before & during the Process of a Re-Decorating.
Our home is smaller in size with 1800 square feet, decorated in a more french country style with Bright
Floral mixed with Plaid and a Small Gingham.
I made the Curtains, Upholstered the Chair, Covered the Dining Chairs.
My husband put in the far windows by fireplace (which were just mini port hole sized) He Built the Fireplace up, I Painted the Built In Entertainment Center White from it's original maple color, and we took out Sliding doors to put in French Doors.
Ready for a Change, wanting to incorporate more of my Loves
French Style Furniture, More Neutral Colors,with an Elegant feel using my Vintage Furniture pieces.
As much as I love Yellow & Red, I'm ready for a calmer more neat and put together look.
This is our Family Room, which is right next to and opens to our Dining and Kitchen area.
I saw a Worn Brown Leather Sofa at (Restoration Hardware for $3500) that i fell in love with (So not happening)
I'm thinking I want to go with a Dark Shade of white for walls,
a worn leather couch with some wood trim or tacking
adding a formal elegant but Vintage French Chair-
and that is where it stops for me
The Problem i have is I love Ballard Designs, the Classic Black with Crisp Clean whites,
But then I LOVE
the Rachel Ashwell style of mixing the old worn sofa with timeless Vintage treasures (God knows I have quite the Collection)
I don't want to go buy a Used Worn Leather sofa, to find it looks Odd in space-
I tried the photo bucket thing (could not figure out)
Not so sure which style chair to put against wall by Fireplace or how many chairs to bring in (also have quite the collection of all styles)
Also debating changing out Ceiling fan for chandelier only- we NEVER use the fan, and would love to bring in an elegant touch- but the chandelier over dining table is black, so Do i have to stick with that?
I guess I have to many styles I love- Ballard Designs, Shabby Chic Mixtures of Timeless Vintage Treasures, & a Comfy Family livable space but with a French Elegant Touch..
Any suggestions, ideas or Ref. of where to go get some great inspiration WOULD be so Appreciated as I'm so in Limbo.
